A perfect clutch does not necessarily have to match your wedding dress, it could just compliment your ensemble.
For example, it could match your bridesmaids’ gowns or the style and tone of your gown.
At Paradox London, we even offer a dying service for clutch bags in certain materials.
Some brides may worry that choosing a colour matched bag will look outdated.
However, if you are a bride with bright flowers, this would work to bring the colour into your look.
Or if your bridesmaids are wearing a soft pastel colour, this would work beautifully.
We offer our Darla clutch bag, made in gorgeous ivory satin with modern pleats for a chic look.

When choosing a perfect clutch, another important aspect is the size and thinking about what you really need for the big day.
A slightly smaller bag is always better as it can be hidden in photos and will not be too much effort to carry around all day.
Remember, your bridesmaids will also be carrying around handbags, so they will be able to fit items in that you may not be able to.
